SUMMERTIME!

Tis the season in our house for some summertime fun. We decided to start the season off on the right foot by giving the boys some cute crew cuts. I tried to buzz their hair, but still too young and terrified by the sound, so I did the best I could with scissors. I think they look adorable. Here are some cutie, pototie, boys.

Proud Logan, always up for some posing and picture taking. I must say though, he looks a lot like Christian as he gets older. He's just so cute, I'm glad he's mine!





These boys are just the sweetest little guys. They love their hair cuts and know it's summer now.

Baby News!

So we got updated news on when our little one will arrive. We now will be having her on the 2nd of June unless something else happens to put me earlier. I had some tests done last week that didn't make the doctor comfortable waiting any later. I will be officially 38 weeks and 3 days then and hoping everything goes good.
The doctor let us know that she is in distress so she might have to go to the NICU depending on her development. He really doesn't want to bring her out any earlier if he doesn't have to. He also warned us that there might be complications that arise with me so he wanted me to know recovery might be longer. We just want our little one to be healthy so we'll keep her inside as long as she can stay.
Because of all the uncertainty with the baby and me, Eric has decided to forgo his seminar in June in case things end up on the bad side. He's just being cautious. So that's what's going on now. She is measuring bigger for her size right now, so hopefully that will help her stay out of the NICU or at least keep her there shorter. We are very excited to finally have a set day in mind and hope all goes well.
I am excited to be able to once again enter the living and do stuff again. I only have 3 weeks left and am extremely excited. We thought my doctor would lift the bed rest order, but he doesn't want to cause anything that might send me earlier- DARN IT! I was hoping to be able to go walking and to the park, but I'll just have to wait a little longer.
So, that's the update and hope for the best for us. Enjoy the nice weather for me!

Things I Love About May

Hey there, I just love the month of May so I thought I would share some of my loves with all of you rather than just posting my rants and frustrations.


1. The month begins with my birthday which I just love because I have lasted through all the bad and enjoyed all the good life has brought.

2. It's the start of some beautiful weather and outings for us.

3. Mother's Day is a wonderful day that I enjoy remembering the women in my life who have taught me and cared for me and that I respect. I have an awesome mother-in-law who tries her hardest to be there for me even when she has so many others she is looking out for. I have great aunts, sister-in-laws, grandma-in-laws(who act just like blood grandmas), and I had one amazing grandma who was more my mom than anything. I hope to be half as good of a mother as she was to me. I also have my daughters to think of and look up to as they already have a lot of mothering care instilled in them. They take care of their younger siblings with so much love and adoration I know they will become wonderful women and mothers.

4. So many people that I love and care for also enjoy May birthdays. My grandma, my mother-in-law, my nephew, and my amazing husband. I love to show these people how much I care for them and love to celebrate their life, especially my husband.

5. Memorial Day is a big one for our family. We love it not only because we have had family members who have served, but also it usually always falls around Eric's birthday so we have a huge weekend extravaganza of celebration. I just love it.

6. My children go off track right around the 22nd of the month and we can enjoy the nice weather and go do fun things. However this year we are hoping to bring home our new addition right around that time. They are all excited and counting down the days.

7. The last thing about May that I absolutely love is the change of season. I enjoy being able to jump into the warmth and walk on the grass barefoot, watch the kids play outside or go swimming. I enjoy the sun and the longer daylight. I enjoy the planning we do for our summer outings we would like to do. I mostly like the thought of not being trapped in my house anymore. I can't wait to be outside everyday soaking up the rays and not having too many cares in the world. I also enjoy the fact that May means we will almost have our new little baby here, YAY!

So these are a few of my favorite things. Writing about them just makes me want to go outside and enjoy everything right now. I love this time of year and am just so happy it is here!
